Product Description
This art lesson connects to Social Studies and Science lessons about communities, weather, map-reading, and more. It combines tissue paper stain with drawing and collage, introduces foreground and background, and engages students in considering alternatives to traditional blue skies.

This lesson includes the following:
- national visual arts standards information
- list of art concepts and skills addressed
- list of materials needed
- targeted art vocabulary and related vocabulary
- suggestions for related read-alouds
- step-by-step directions for art-making
- ideas for extensions and variations
- directions and suggestions for looking at and discussing art
- writing extension suggestions
- photographs of student work for reference

Also included: an art reflection student worksheet, Creating My Art, with prompts to help students analyze their own art work.

This comprehensive lesson is designed to teach art appreciation, art technique, and art analysis; and to foster authentic art-making and art education.

National Core Visual Arts Standards are listed at the beginning of the lesson.

Because I teach in California, this lesson also includes a list of the California Visual Arts Standards addressed for suggested grade levels. Please note that listed grade levels are suggestions only; any of these lessons can be simplified or made more complex to work for any elementary grade.

I am a retired elementary classroom teacher, a former art teacher, an artist and a writer. I have a Multiple Subjects credential, a Single Subject credential for Art and English, LDS/ESL certification, a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education with a Mathematics focus, and Montessori certification. I have worked with all elementary grades, and with special groups including ELL, GATE, and At-Risk students. Creating Art With Kids and Share2Learn lessons and resources are designed to foster student creativity, choice, and independence, and to encourage authentic art-making. Consideration is given to developmental appropriateness, differentiation possibilities, and teacher individuality. For this reason, directions are general, expectations are open-ended, and clip art on student pages is kept to a minimum.
